KIDS CUP is a feel-good family film about the world's largest sports tournament for kids, Norway Cup, in Oslo Norway. We dive into five teenages from different parts of the world, competing to win the gold medal. Afnan from Palestine, Khalidi from Tanzania/USA, Yu from China, Fred from Brazil and Anna from Norway all share the same dream, but they meet unexpected obstacles; unfair referees, homesickness, missing the penalty shot. Thankfully there are girls to flirt with and fun fairs and candy shops to take your mind off your loss. A film about friendship and ambitions.
